Text Me A Quilt

        I can't even remember how I got to talking to Kim Brackett of "Magnolia Bay Quilts" about a project she was starting using text and low volume fabrics but I do remember that 10 weeks ago I received an Instagram message from her with a picture of the start of her quilt.  Text prints and bright fabrics!   I remember staring at it and telling Kim that I am obsessed with text/low volume prints and promised I wouldn't say a thing until she revealed it on her blog.

        I did take the liberty of sending her a picture of my low volume fabrics
and assured her that I was good to go whenever she revealed the pattern, and then I proceeded to add to my stash.  

       While I was on my cruise to Alaska I checked my email one afternoon and there was the pattern !
I could not wait to get home and start cutting out some bright fabrics and then make the decision as to 7 or 10 inch blocks.  

Here's my top up on the design wall.....make it larger?  Add a border?, it's staying just the size it is.

Last week I found a great turquoise and white hawaiian print fabric in my backing stash bin and sent it out to be quilted.....It came back on Saturday and all I have to say is I LOVE IT!  
Here are 2 pictures I got of the quilting....It's hard to get pictures of the quilting because of the thread color on the text print, but it's an orange peel, and perfect for this top.

I did a 10 inch block and if you too would like to make this top, just head on over to "Magnolia Bay Quilts"  and pick up  your instructions.  You won't be sorry!!!

It's awesome! I love it "as is" too. Borders would just close it up. I just love it.

I'm loving the bright colors. Really great contrast with the background fabrics! Ten weeks?!! I'm so slow!

Thanks so much for sewing along with me.

I am loving the colors you used in the quilt! And I am a fan of all things texty. Hope you are enjoying the great summer weather we are having!
